Herefordshire Safeguarding Boards and Partnerships

Case Reviews

Case reviews are undertaken when a serious safeguarding incident has occurred, so that organisations can understand what went wrong and how to make improvements to work better together to safeguarding children and adults at risk.

Select the tabs above to learn more about each of the three types of case reviews.

Joint Case Review Sub Group

The Joint Case Review Sub Group oversees any case review that needs to be undertaken, and acts as a learning sub group to the three partnerships/board. The group is accountable to the Herefordshire Safeguarding Adults Board, Herefordshire Community Safety Partnership Board, and the three Safeguarding Children Partners (Herefordshire Council, West Mercia Police, and the NHS Integrated Care Board).

All three Boards/Partnerships are committed to reviewing cases that do not meet the formal criteria for full review, but where there has been serious harm caused to an individual by abuse or neglect and it is felt that there could be useful learning for staff and agencies in Herefordshire. Where there has not been a death, or where no serious harm was caused to an individual, the three boards/partnerships will need to consider how they may want to review other cases which arise where there may be a need for inter- agency learning. Such cases fall outside the scope of the Joint Case Review sub group.
